Dr. Arthur Falbush Presents at CASDA Music Symposium

On October  27th, Dr. Arthur Falbush presented By Ear: An American Alternative to Traditional Large Ensemble Instruction, at the 2016 CASDA Music Educators Symposium in Albany, New York. The workshop explained the methodology behind the time-honored aural tradition of learning jazz and improvised music, and investigated its potential as a way to augment or as an alternative, to existing large instrumental ensemble curriculum. Attending educators came away from the session with an idea as how to implement these concepts in their own programs.

In January, Falbush will lead a weeklong jazz education workshop in Christchurch, New Zealand.
